phpJobScheduler - The Limitations and What to do About Them

This works pretty well as an alternative to Cron. The standard approach is to add a command to one or more of your website pages to trigger it. In my case, I use Cron to trigger it. I use PHPJobScheduler because my web host limits the number of Cron jobs that I can set up.
It has two important limitations but there are ways around them:
- If you trigger it from your web site, then you need enough (consistent) traffic or it won't be triggered when you are expecting it to be.
- If your web hosting service turns off the allow_url_include parameter in the php.ini module, then the normal way of specifying the address of the program to be scheduled (using a full http://... url) won't work. The hosting companies do this because it creates a security exposure.
I am working on a way around this (the first version has a problem) and you can see the details at: http://innovationsdesign.net/wb_2.7/pages/posts/php-job-scheduler19.php
